In the summer months, many local children do not have access to nutritious meals and go hungry. You can be part of the solution by supporting MeaningFULL Meals this July.

United Way of Greater Greensboro (UWGG) is mobilizing the community throughout July in partnership with BackPack Beginnings and The Volunteer Center of the Triad to collect as much food as possible to support summer nutrition programs.

It’s easy to participate – choose from two options:

  1. Simply host a drive in July, using the toolkit below and drop off your donations at BackPack Beginnings by August 5. BackPack Beginnings is located at 3711 Alliance Drive Greensboro, NC 27407. Visit to check weekly office hours. EVERYTHING you need to host a drive can be found in this easy to follow and print TOOLKIT!
  2. Bring your own food donations to The Volunteer Center of the Triad on July 22, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. – everyone dropping off donations will get FREE ICE CREAM! Volunteer Center of the Triad is located at 1500 Yanceyville Street Greensboro, NC 27405.
